Create your own political party, lace up your boxing gloves, and punch your way to the White House in Election Year Knockout! In a country torn apart by its political divide, the nation has resorted to boxing to settle its differences. Fight your way through hilarious political opponents before squaring off with president Donald Thump himself!

Election Year Knockout is like a White House Correspondents dinner with boxing gloves, uppercuts, and haymakers! The game hits both sides of the aisle hard, picking on Democrats and Republicans. Unwind after voting in your local primary, caucus, or the general election and give your favorite (or least favorite) politician an uppercut to the face!

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Knockout looks to be a polished, suitably ridiculous arcade boxing game. - Pocket Gamer

Game Features

Beat them all and become president!
Fight political parody figures including Jab Bush, Uncle Joe, and Birdie Sanders. Maybe you even have what it takes to reach the White House and take on the leader of the nation, Donald Thump! Each opponent presents a unique challenge with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Absolutely hilarious
Hysterically funny cutscenes and political jokes are mixed in everywhere. You’ll never laugh harder at a boxing game!

Dozens of challenging bonus missions
The game doesn’t end after beating an opponent in the ring. Optional bonus missions will keep political pugilists interested for hours. Can you beat Jab Bush with a single punch or counter Donald Thump’s Stormy Smash with a haymaker three times in a single round?

Boost your way to the presidency
Politicians never fight fair, and neither should you! Unlock powerful boosts like Cup of Filibuster that will allow you to punch almost forever. The veto boost allows you to make one final stand, but be careful! You can only use it once per match.

Customize your fighter
Customize your fighter including the gender, hairstyle, skin tone, and hair color. There are even multiple patriotic styles of boxing attire to choose from with much more on the way soon!

Full controller support
Plug in a supported controller (including xBox One and PS4 controllers) for an even more authentic retro boxing game experience.

good game pls play

Honestly one of the best mobile games I’ve ever played, with a surprising amount of polish and content to the point where it doesn’t feel like a mobile game anymore. I’d gladly buy a console or PC version with added content or something. Even with the very clear Punch-Out!! inspiration, it manages to feel quite different. Also, the political jokes are actually funny and don’t lean in either direction, which is a plus.

Definitely not a biased review because the devs gave me a pin for beating Ber- er, Birdie Sanders at PAX East.

Thank you for the glowing review! We're so happy you're enjoying the game -- we're looking into creating a console version. Props to you for beating Birdie! He can be a tough one :)

One of the most well developed mobile games I’ve ever seen.

Sure, it just looks like Punch Out with presidential puns and a hilarious story, and that’s cuz it is. This game is amazing from the effort put into it to the gameplay itself. One thing I like about Punch out is how its not just fighting, every opponent has a different style you can strategize on and learn from. Now I can plop that on my iPad instead of searching for a 24 year old game console.

Punchout! + Politics = Something Great

This is... Oh boy, where do I begin? Lemme keep this short, simple, and sweet so you aren't here for 50 years. This game is an absolute nostalgia filled love letter to Punchout! and it's games. And, it treats politics in a joking and funny way that doesn't come off as offensive. The mechanics work great and it has brilliant original features. 12/7 from me. Wait, I can't rate it as that? Eh, 5 stars then. It's good enough.

Thanks for the awesome review! We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed playing the game just as much as we enjoyed creating it :)
